The New York-Los Angeles Jazz Ensemble

Reedman/vocalist, Jerry Vivino and pianist Mitch Forman, both N.Y./ L.A. transplants, team up with bassist Kevin Axt to perform some of the most beautiful songs ever written by some of the most prolific song writers of all time — a mix of George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Antonia Carlos Jobim, John Coltrane, Thad Jones, Monk and many others. Sit back and relax while these top LA players give their spin on the music we all can relate to and forever cherish.

Jerry Vivino, currently a member of the Basic Cable Band, the house band for the TBS late night program Conan. Featured on countless recordings, TV commercials and movie soundtracks, Vivino has played with Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor, Frankie Valli, Al Kooper, Dion, James Brown, Dr. John, Branford and Wynton Marsalis, to name just a few.

Mitch Forman, recognized as one of the premier keyboardists of his generation, has performed with many of the legends of traditional and contemporary jazz including Wayne Shorter, Mahavishnu Orchestra, John Scofield, Gerry Mulligan and Stan Getz. He has 10 CD’s to his name, and is currently performing around Los Angeles and well as composing for television and film.

Kevin Axt, Grammy nominee bassist for the Tierney Sutton Band, continues to be one of the busiest bassists in LA, playing on over 130 albums and in dozens of theater, film and television productions. He has performed, recorded and toured with Natalie Cole, Jimmy Smith, Phil Woods, Queen Latifah, Placido Domingo, Chuck Mangione, KD Lang, Robben Ford, Jack Sheldon, Etta James, James Moody.
